Living alone after years of living with the parents can be daunting. But somehow, coming home to a beautifully decorated space that's all yours makes it better. In terms of design, you have free reign to choose things that perfectly suit your personality.
Such was the case for this condo unit. Its bachelorette owner wanted to spruce up her first major investment, so she turned to interior designer Kristine Neri. The owner's only conditions? The result must be open, airy, and relaxing. The rest, however, was entirely up to Kristine. In the end, Kristine was able to transform a bare space into an elegant and feminine shell infused with the owner's subdued personality.
